Ted Cruz is, was, our preferred candidate going in as you all know. And yes, as we’ve pointed out before, our view of him has changed quite a bit over the primaries as his behavior in various and sundry cage fights struck us as quite a bit less honorable (we finally managed to spell it without a “u”! Who said we’d never make it!) than what we’d expected, but we never ever truly gave up hope that one day he would be ready for a comeback.
But with his behavior (another “u” we left out!) tonight, we have to say he went too far.
What’d he do? Did he eat a live puppy on stage? Did he declare his unabiding love for Cankles’ fetid inner thighs?
No. Worse than that.
TODD: You’ve said some tough things on Trump. Why are you comfortable supporting him as the nominee if he ends up the nominee.
CRUZ: Well, listen, I pledged at the outset I will support the Republican nominee, whoever it is…
TODD: Why are you making a pledge to the party and not to the voters?
CRUZ: Because Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders would be a manifest disaster. If Hillary is the president, we will lose the Supreme Court for a generation, the Second Amendment will be written out of the Bill of Rights, we’ll lose our religious liberty, we’ll be buried in debt and our will remain coming out of school without jobs, without opportunities. Hillary would be disastrous for this country. So the answer is not simply to resign yourself to Donald Trump, who would be a disaster as well, the answer is to beat Donald.
TODD: Given everything you’ve just said about him in this interview, you still will support him if that is what the Republican party does?
CRUZ: You know, Chuck, I’m a very simple man and when I give my word for something, I follow through and do what I said.
Except when you don’t, obviously.
We’re sorry, that’s a bridge too far.
Don’t get us wrong, Senator. We absolutely understand why you’d rather drink a bucket full of Hillary’s vaginal discharge than endorse Trump at this point, it’s not like the two of you don’t have a history, but… You gave your word.
You gave your WORD.
No matter how distasteful keeping said word might turn out to be in the future, you’re still bound by it. Your word is your bond.
Oh shit, we just lifted that from the First Wookie, Moochelle Obama’s speech, didn’t we? That means that we, like Melania Trump, are worse than Hitler, according to the Prozi Media. After all, nobody in the history of mankind ever used those words before she halfway intelligibly horked them out past her testicle shelf. Oh well, if we have to be Worse than Hitler™ together with a beautiful lady like Melania, we can live with it, we suppose. But we digress.
Your word IS your bond. If you violate your own word, then your word will never mean anything ever again. If you can do it once, you can do it every time. Or every other time or every third time. It doesn’t matter. Your word is, from that point onwards, worthless. Just like ¡Ruuuuubio!’s word is worth less than koranimal shit after he lied about amnesty. He lied once. Nobody can convince us that any single future statement out of his mouth isn’t also a lie.
Yes, again, we do understand “changing your mind.” That’s why, if you’re in doubt as to whether or not you’ll be able to keep a promise, YOU DON’T MAKE IT! That’s not hard. We’ve been in situations in our life numerous times where somebody asked us if we’d do something that we really, really wanted to do and were absolutely fine with doing at the time, but weren’t quite sure if we could follow through on it. So we didn’t make the promise, because then we wouldn’t have to potentially one day back down on it. That’s not hard. Just don’t make the promise. Because once you do, you’re bound by it.
But perhaps you were just thinking “yeah right, that silly reality show star isn’t ever going to win the primaries, so I won’t ever have to make good on this promise. Hey, I’ll just make it.”
That’s a pity, and we really mean that. You see, we really admired you for all the things you did to shake up the Imperial DC apple cart. When Trump used “nobody likes him” as a weapon against you, we took that as an endorsement, because we don’t ever want anybody who is liked by those filthy, lying, Quisling pigs in DC. When somebody said “oh yeah, but what did he actually achieve by standing up to the Uniparty?”, we replied “he stood up, didn’t he? What the fuck did YOU do? And, by the way, could you please spit out Obama’s cock before you answer because your words are kind of muffled right now.”
But perhaps it was all a show. Perhaps your “standing athwart the DC Uniparty’s progress, yelling STOP!”, your “fighting against impossible odds because at least you’re fighting” was all a show? Perhaps it was all a ploy by the increasingly uneasy Uniparty to make us dumb rubes think that “hey, there’s still something to work with! Let’s not burn the house down just yet!”
We actually heard that over the past years and we always answered “you’re being a bit paranoid, aren’t you? Ted’s a good man. He’d never agree to something like that. He’s done everything he said he would do, hasn’t he? OK, so he hasn’t won yet, but the time will come. At least they’re not ALL rotten, bought scoundrels.”
Now that you’ve shown yourself to have no honor, we’re no longer so sure.
Maybe it was all a carefully choreographed show for the “rubes.” Maybe your torpedoing of the latest Shamnesty bill was all pre-arranged, like a Wrasslin’ match where the underdog gets to win one, inconsequential battle while all of the important ones go to the other side, just to keep the audience thinking that maybe, just maybe, there’s a comeback in the offing.
We’re not saying it was, but we can’t really know anymore, can we?
You’re done for.
You’re dead to us now.
